Bury me underground
Smile towards the tombstone
If I should forget the songs
That rock me to my bone

My friend only knows
Top forty radio
I hope it's just one man's fault
I hope he's on a throne
Above these corporate clones
There I can cut out his heart

Violence makes some sense
My hands are blood toned
Clenching up into fists
Pounding the dial-er

I want new terrain
Where are the DJs
Our mainstream is stagnant
Why devolve to this
Monotonous shtick
A month a hit
And on and on

I'll take every miss
Before the same hits
Just to get something fresh
Why devolve to this
Monotonous shtick
Of sequence
Reruns reran


from Part 3 EP, released February 5, 2014
Recorded mostly live and mixed by Justin Kirkland at Screen Door Records.
